Emily & Tripper’s Wedding was one of the most fun weddings I’ve ever photographed. Emily is from Georgia while the groom hails from Louisiana. They wanted to fuse their two backgrounds together and create a beautiful and fun southern soiree and Amy from A Flawless Event did just that! The wedding was held in Atlanta at The Foundry at Puritan Mill, a rustic brick converted warehouse space that was a complete blank canvas. They integrated lots of candlelight as well as some fun elements from the bayou into their celebration. Upon entering the cocktail reception, the guests were greeted with a beautiful escort card display, champagne and fresh oysters from Louisiana! Emily & Tripper had the oysters brought up that morning all the way from the bayou, fresh as could be. They were served in a boat and freshly shucked for all the guests to enjoy. Then, guests were treated to a candlelit sit-down dinner with tons of beautiful details. All of the tables contained different lush floral arrangements by Tulip with silver chargers, mercury glass candleholders as well as a 40+ feet long magnolia leaf and bloom garland that ran the entire length of the head table. The couple danced the night away with friends and family and a great time was had at this elegant southern soiree.
I don’t often get to do Maternity Sessions, so I was VERY excited to capture this session of Niamah & Darren while they were on their ‘babymoon’ in the beautiful Arizona desert! They loved the desert landscape and wanted to incorporate that into their session and it turned out absolutely gorgeous! Not to mention that Niamah & Darren are super sweet and gorgeous themselves. Congratulations Niamah & Darren on your new arrival!!!

It’s funny how some stories come full circle. Such was the case with this shoot with Diana & James. This shoot happened in the same place where I met the lovely Diana, Italy! I met her almost five years ago (whoa!) at a photography workshop in Tuscany with Jose Villa that you can read all about HERE. Many of the attendees became great friends and kept in touch through the years. Last year, Diana got married and I found out she was going to be in Rome for part of her honeymoon at the EXACT time that I was going to be there! Only one day lined up that we would be there at the same time, so we decided to meet up for a little ‘honeymoon shoot’ to capture their time in beautiful Roma, the eternal city.
We started by roaming the streets near their hotel and found several cute spots complete with a vintage, red Fiat and Vespa. Then, meandered throughout the area to the Spanish Steps (Piazza di Spagna), and up to the Borghese Gardens. Spring was in full bloom in Rome and the gardens were exploding with these beautiful purple blooms. One of our favorite spots was a little portico that we believed to be private, but snuck into anyways – it had this beautiful arched ceiling, all white and an old, marble tub. Rome is the perfect city to be in love, and it shows in Diana & James’ photos.
